My 3rd show. Red Rocks again and a new album for the band to play with. The new songs were great to hear live and the band was impressive. Once again, a great evening.

My second show, unfortunatly also to be DMB's last at Red Rocks. It poured rain the whole show, Dave even had to leave stage really quick to get a beanie cause he was cold.

I originally posted this on nancies.org on May 25, 1998. No edits have been made... this is what I said then and I stand by it. (If you are actually reading this.)

It's unfortunate that it had to rain during the concert tonight because the band was really into the show. I've read all the prior reviews about some members taking the night off and having little intensity, that certainly wasn't the case Sunday night. It started to rain two or three songs into the set, but we didn't really get any interesting "Davespeak" with it. He said little things like "hope you're all having a pleasant wet evening," but didn't really do anything spectacular. When it started to rain harder, the band huddled together on stage and decided to play "Stay." Needless to say, when Dave sang the lyrics, "and it began to rain" the crowd went nuts. By the end of the nearly three hour set, the band pulled out Dancing Nancies. The clouds had rolled through by then, so when the crowd "looked up at the sky" the stars were out. It was really surreal. The other important thing to let everyone know is that the band played three songs during their encore - Two Step, Don't Drink the Water, and Crash into Me. There are better set closers than Crash into Me, but all the little girls loved it; so did my date so I didn't say anything. Other highlights: #41, a killer version of Billies, and Typical Situation. They jammed on that one for a long time. Hopefully, there's no rain tonight.

Maybe the best show I've ever seen. Crazy weather all day seemed to have cleared only for the rain to pour down on us as DMB took the stage. But how they rocked the house! Changed up the setlist a bit to give us a chance to cheer for the rain songs. Powerful, energetic performance all the way through. Unusual three song encore with an even stranger Crash closer.

Next to my New Year's Eve experience in Hampton, VA, these two shows were by far one of the most amazing Dave experiences I've had. My friend ended up cancelling so I flew from Chicago to Denver alone for Memorial Day weekend. I went to Red Rocks very early each day and sat in line--among the rocks--with some really cool people. The shoes were absolutely amazing. The skies opened up and poured one night and I think it just fueled the audience on even more. And the setlists were perfect. I think I almost passed out with Granny on the first night and then with Jane (and the Watchtower finale) on the second night. A memory I will never forget.
